    The colour isn't very well represented in that pic... the blue is better than that on the actual product but yeah the SFS are a tad cheaper...

    with car specific hoses the ebay one work but like tuffty said, they go soft after a few heat cycles. i was lucky as I got sfs boost hoses for free in exchange for sorting out a mates computer :)

    Cheapo crapo ones can be crushed with your hand, whereas you can hardly put an indent in the forge ones, and they look beautiful.
